What Is the Shelf-life of Long Pepper?

Our Long pepper can last for twelve months if it is properly stored. It does not get spoilt, but it will start to lose its potency with time and will not flavour or show its benefits as intended.

How to Store Long Pepper?

Here are a few simple steps to follow in order to keep your Long pepper fresh for a longer duration.

  • Store it in an airtight container and remember to close the lid of the container tightly as soon as you finish using it.
  • Before storing the spikes in airtight containers, make sure the spikes, as well as the bottle, is thoroughly dried because the presence of moisture will cause the seeds to develop molds.
  • Coloured bottles are a better option to store the spikes as it protects it from direct sunlight. If you are using clear bottles, remember to store it in closed cabinets or wall racks which do not receive direct sunlight.
  • Store it away from stoves, ovens, windows and do not keep it on the top of a refrigerator because the heat emitted from them causes the spikes to lose its strength and volatile content.
